Six Holiday Blog Post Ideas for your Rheumatology Website

Part of what makes a blog successful is including interesting and relevant content. During the holiday season, themed blog posts are important. If done correctly, they will help generate interest, drive traffic to your site and build a strong relationship between you and your audience. However, creating seasonal content ideas for a rheumatology website isn’t always easy. Here are six holiday blog post ideas for your rheumatology website that will make the season a little brighter for your followers.

How to Survive the Holidays with Arthritis.

For most the holidays mean family, friends, baking and shopping. However, for those with arthritis, this time isn’t always the happiest. It is harder to enjoy the holidays when simple things such as decorating or gift giving can be difficult and even painful. Write content that shows that having arthritis doesn’t mean they have to give up on this wonderful time of year. Encourage your audience to find ways to adapt and manage. Create a post with tips and ideas on how to make this time of year easier and more enjoyable. This will show that you understand the pain and care about the well-being of your followers.

Make Your Home Comfortable for a Holiday Guest with Arthritis.

This blog post will be for those who want to help family and friends with arthritis. The holidays are a festive season that often include traveling and visits. For those who suffer from arthritis, gatherings can be a time to celebrate – or dread. While there isn’t much a host can do to ease the pain or fatigue, they can implement ideas to make their home more comfortable and cozier for guests who have arthritis. Generate some simple ideas that won’t require a home overhaul; just a little time and effort to help someone they love make it through the holidays a bit easier.

Gift Ideas for Those with Arthritis.

Finding that perfect present for someone with arthritis may be a bit of a struggle. Give your followers some ideas that are practical, yet fun and exciting. Create a list that includes different ideas that will make the holidays a littler merrier for those who suffer from arthritis. Consider crafting a variety of gift guides for different audiences, while all being arthritis related. Include a budget-friendly gift list, ideas for last minute shoppers or tips for the person who is hard to shop for. Specific lists will drive traffic to your website because you are providing your followers with important and helpful ideas.

Strategies for Managing Flare-ups During the Holidays.

Because of the hustle and bustle of the season, there is an increased chance of arthritis flare-ups this time of year. It is tough to get into the holiday spirit when flare-ups become too hard to manage. Make a list of strategies that will help prevent these painful and annoying flare-ups before they begin. This will help followers enjoy the holidays instead of dealing with pain. When you provide them with knowledgeable and effective tips, they will know they can trust your website and its guidance.

Tips to Make it Through those Holiday Parties.

While hosting or attending parties can seem daunting, it may be well worth the work for your patients. Studies show that spending time with friends and family can ease feelings of sadness and isolation that come with arthritis. With extra rest, some preparation, and advice from your website you will have your followers ready to party this holiday season.

Realistic New Year’s Resolutions for a Healthier New Year.

As cliché as resolutions may seem, the new year is a great time for your followers to think about starting fresh and making some positive lifestyle changes. They are also great topics for generating traffic at your website. Create a post with some healthy resolution ideas for arthritis sufferers, and some realistic tactics that can turn those good intentions into reality.

As with any time of year, the key to creating great content during the holiday season is to think about your audience. Tap into what they’re concerned about, excited about, or just what is on their minds. When you do this, you can create content that speaks to them and in turn ensure they come back. Don’t hesitate to get fun and creative with it.

We hope these ideas help you generate some great holiday content for your rheumatology practice, help you to reach new patients and engage with the ones you already have.

  • As a speaker at the first ad hoc meeting of rheumatology practice managers gathered in a single small room at its infancy a decade ago, I’m amazed to see how NORM has blossomed into a high energy organization of depth and professional meetings with parallel break-out symposia between plenary sessions. NORM has truly come of age. This is where the “business” of rheumatology gets learned. The ”guildmanship” for rheumatology practice management is now strong.- Paul H. Caldron, DO, FACP, FACR, MBA, Arizona Arthritis and Rheumatology Associates
  • In a time of demanding changes in the management of medical practices in the US, NORM has been a lifesaver to the community of Rheumatology practices.  NORM has allowed our practice to stay ahead of the many demands of CMS and others payors and has ensured that our practice remains cognizant of new issues that arise in HIPPA compliance, human resources and medical billing to name a few. Sending our Practice Manager to NORM's conferences has been cost-effective and beneficial to our practice because she returns to our office with an abundance of information that otherwise would have taken months to compile. Every Rheumatology practice that wishes to stay on top of emerging issues in practice management should consider sending a member of their staff to NORM's conference.- Michael S. Rosen M.D., Chester County Rheumatology PC
  • Thanks to all those wonderful people in the NORM Network who respond to emails, offering their advice, experience, time, and support ... I haven't even been a member a full year yet and I am amazed at the dedication of everyone who responds to helping via emails and the NORM Organization itself! I have barely had a chance to explore the resources and I have yet to really dive into requests for help still I am silently learning so much and do occasionally offer what I can! Thank you all!- Cheryl Piambino, Kenneth E. Bresky, DO
